2015: The Year of Funding it Forward

Funding in digital health has been growing and growing, yet there has been little focus distinctly dedicated to the 50+ crowd. All bets are off for 2015. The next generation of incubators and funds are launching to stimulate innovators—“with money in hand”—to develop technologies serving those that need it most!

Tech Talk: Technology Each Day Keeps the Hospital Away

Join David Taylor from the VNA Rockford for a very insightful look at how cutting edge technology and care teams are keeping us home and out of the hospital. David spearheaded an initiative two years ago to utilize telehealth services to address high readmission rates. During this talk, you will gain insights into what is working to not only prevent those readmissions but what's helping us stay far far away from the get go.

Is Technology Smart Enough to Care for Us?

We are no longer talking about a theoretical future in which technology continuously monitors our health … it is becoming a reality NOW. Technology has become so sophisticated that it is starting to passively monitor and care for us as if we had a doctor living in our own homes. Two representatives from innovative tech companies that are pushing the boundaries of remote monitoring will be joined by a forward-thinking care provider who is working to raise the bar in care delivery. How will these people from tech and healthcare work together to help us live better and longer lives? You won’t want to miss finding out!

PART 2: Sophisticated Taste Does Not Diminish With Age

In the past, those developing for the senior market removed the cool factor from their innovations. And yet, like a fine wine, the 50+ generation’s taste has matured, and they demand not only valuable solutions, but ones that are as well-designed as those of their younger generations.

Tech Talk: The Privacy Fear Factor

The Internet is a vital digital connection, even considered a lifeline to our friends, finances, health information, news, commerce and even the world. With the business world migrating entirely online, it is essential that all adult individuals be able to utilize the internet or risk being cut off from vital connectivity and information. Feeling safe, comfortable and protected online, especially in our increasingly connected and mobile world, is another matter. One of the greatest inhibitors to adoption is a fear of online privacy and security. How can companies help their customers feel safe while online?

Join Judith Bitterli from AVG, a long-time leader in privacy and online security, as she shares critical information for all businesses: how they can help boomers and seniors feel safe and secure online. Bitterli, who regularly blogs on tech topics for Boomers at now.AVG.com, will share insights and attitudes about privacy and protection so your customer can have confidence accessing all the things they need – from health and financial records to social sites and more.

Judith Bitterli, Chief Marketing Officer, AVG Technologies

In this session Gary Kaye, who covers products for the 50+ market, looks at what makes some products great and others… well, not so much.

Can the internet add years to your life?

Mary Furlong, a visionary who founded SeniorNet 30 years ago, knew then what we take for granted now: that online access boosts the ability to work and volunteer as well as provides access to health, purchasing, travel, and new skills and ideas. Yet Internet use drops off after the age of 75. According to Pew Research, six in ten American seniors now go online and just under half have a broadband connection at home.

Thomas Kamber has a mission to help those offline benefit from all that is online. He is the founding Executive Director of Older Adults Technology Services (OATS)—the largest municipal technology program for senior citizens in the country. This session will explore 1) why closing the Digital Divide is so critical to the wellbeing and longevity of older adults, and 2) how every company at CES can increase their reach to this market by taking an active role to getting these individuals online.

Leading this discussion is Laurie Orlov, a top analyst for the 50+ market who has been proactively beating the drum to help bring seniors online and understands the nuances of making this a reality. More importantly, she isn't afraid of asking the tough questions and pushing the envelope to generate the changes we need.
